Asian American Assembly Position Paper: II. A Review of U.S. Employment Policy. Occasional Papers/Reprint Series in Contemporary Asian Studies, No. 12.
Maryland Univ., Baltimore. School of Law
This volume consists of papers which were submitted to the Asian American Assembly conference in New York in 1977. The goals of the Assembly are outlined in the volume's preface. Community and academic activities undertaken by the Assembly in cooperation with the City College of New York Department of Asian Studies are described. In a paper by a Pennsylvania judge, Asian American attitudes are explored. Both attitudes toward one another and attitudes toward oneself are discussed. Steps toward self acceptance and social equality are suggested. In a second paper, by a professor of Asian Studies, employment patterns of Chinese Americans are discussed. The rate of growth of the Chinese population in the U.S. is mentioned as a factor to consider in the employment outlook for 1980. The question of whether traditional employment patterns will serve future needs is also addressed. Language education and job training, as well as the utilization of affirmative action channels, are suggested as ways of improving opportunities. Data on the occupational distribution of Chinese Americans is presented in statistical tables. A list of members of the Asian Assembly is also included in this document. (GC)
